According to Resolution R 14 160, several homeowners on Bayside Drive sent the Highlands Borough a Letter of Intent requesting annexation to the Borough of Atlantic Highlands.
Three of the properties requesting are:
- 280 Bayside Drive
- 284 Bayside Drive
- 290 Bayside Drive
Those properties run in between Shore Drive and Bayside Drive. The Borough of Highlands supports the annexation of those properties and is considering a consenting resolution upon receipt of the actual petition.
The premise is because their homes are inaccessible from Highlands Emergency services because Bayside Drive is closed to through traffic between Highlands and Atlantic Highlands. You know because the road is collapsing. Not because of slump blocking or hill issues, just because.
It’ll be interesting to see if there are other homes following suit requesting annexation to other towns. Wouldn’t it be funny if the majority of the town requested annexation to Atlantic Highlands, Middletown and Sea Bright?
